Golf Swing Tips

To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Dunscar Golf Club

Dunscar Golf Club was founded in 1908 and is situated in the valley of Galebrook between Turton Heights and Winter Hill. Though only 3 miles from the centre of Bolton, Dunscar offers peace, tranquility and fine uninterrupted views. Dunscar is an 18 hole moorland course and is a challenge to golfers of all levelsAt 5982 yds it is not a short course and you need to pace yourself accordingly. Grass growth on the course is sturdy and there is an abundance of heather and gorse. As the course is quite open to the elements, the wind can often be a tough challenge, very similar to a links course with swirls, eddies and gusts that you would normally associate with a seaside venue. It is not uncommon to see a herd of deer whilst playing a round and encountering a number of pheasants is not unusual

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

Several years ago PGA Tour pro Tom Sieckmann showed me an interesting problem he had on what we now call “facing” putts. On big-breaking right-to-left putts when Tom looked up from his address position he looked down the Aim-line (which is good). Because Tom is right-handed on these big breakers the hole was slightly behind him out of view and he was never tempted to look at it during the last moments of his preputt ritual. He looked down his Aimline the way he was supposed to and never cheated a peek at the hole.

But the situation was very different on left-to-right putts. When Tom looked

Face Your Special Problems up on these the hole seemed to be right there facing him and he couldn’t help but look at it. Even though he knew that during his preputt ritual he needed to he focused and looking down his Aimline preparing to start his putt rolling there he found himself peeking out to the right at the hole.

Are you a right-handed golfer having difficulty with left-to-right putts? This could be your problem too. if you look to the hole you might be tempted subconsciously to start your putt in that direction because your training has been to putt where you look (supposedly down the Aimline) which would prove to be disaster in this case.

Just like the “Killer-Downhiller” situation discussed above being aware of the problem should help you concentrate on doing the right things to avoid it. Anything that distracts you from focusing on and starting your putts along your Aimline at the proper speed will degrade your putting and must he avoided. So remember orient your stroke to your Aimline during indoor drills and keep your focus during your ritual on the Elevated Aimline during outdoor practice. Once you form a habit of starting all putts on your Aimline “facing-putts” will no longer be a problem for you.

14.9 Yipping the Short Putts

The Long Drive Bible: How You Can Hit the Ball Longer, Straighter, and More Consistently

Extract from the book:

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

Problems on the Greens 25

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now look at the bottom of Figure 2.6.5 to see how far these same putts roll given the same amount of starting energy on a straight downhill putt. There ‘s a big difference from the level and uphill putts. Of course each downhill putt rolls farther but more important the spread of distances between balls has increased meaning the roll distance is more sensitive to energy input. Now the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 18 feet. So your downhill stroke has to be about three times more precise than your uphill stroke to stop a putt at the right distance. When putting downhill make a stroke of the wrong speed and you’ll have trouble making your next putt.

I’m not saying that understanding putting like this will make you a great putter. But I am saying that understanding nature’s rules and where the dangers lie in putting can help you be a better putter. And not understanding what putting is all about will make it even more difficult for you to learn to putt well.

So if you don’t know that downhill putts break more than uphill putts on the same slope (covered in Chapter 7) then you won’t be making many downhill-breaking putts. Or if you believe that Bobby Locke and Ben Crenshaw struck their putts with overspin to make them dive into the hole then it’s unlikely that you’ll work on those aspects of your putting that actually can help you putt better (see section 4.9).

Imagine the line that has been drawn is your spine (axis). When the backswing is made, just rotate everything around that axis. If you do this properly, you will be on the correct plane. This correct swing plane will help your power, accuracy, and consistency. Keep the left arm locked as shown.
